Share worksheets

You can share worksheets with users or with groups.

Sharing a worksheet allows users to select it as a data source and search it. When you share a worksheet, you give users or groups within your cluster access to the worksheet’s data. You share all of its columns. Sharing a worksheet does not share the underlying tables. If you want to share the underlying tables, see Sharing tables and columns.

If you want to migrate the worksheet to another cluster, or otherwise export it, see Migrate or restore objects.

A worksheet can be shared by the owner of the worksheet, or by an administrator. Users can start searching a worksheet as soon as the worksheet is shared with them.

You can share a worksheet from the list of worksheets under worksheets on the Data tab, or from within the worksheet.
